After the sensational success of Wonder Woman, it didn’t come as a massive surprise to hear that Warner Bros. wanted Patty Jenkins back in the director’s chair for the sequel. Thankfully, the deal was made, and we have another Patty Jenkins directed Wonder Woman movie to get excited about, but things might be a lot different when Diana returns to the big screen.
Talking to ET Canada, Jenkins revealed that she doesn’t view the second Wonder Woman film as a sequel, preferring to see it as an entirely different story and adventure.
“We’re actually making a totally different film with a lot of the same, similar like things that we love, but it’s its own movie completely, so it’s not ‘two’ to us. It’s an entirely new adventure together that we couldn’t be luckier [to do].”
Jenkins also touched on a possible cameo for Lynda Carter in the sequel. The actress portrayed Wonder Woman on the small screen for years, and although she didn’t appear in the first film, there’s still a chance for a cameo in the Wonder Woman sequel.
“We’ll see, Lynda is one of the dearest people to us, has been a great mentor and dear friend. And we actually desperately tried to get her in the first one and we had the scheduling that couldn’t work, so she’s always been a part of our Wonder Woman family. We won’t say anything yet, but we certainly—there’s no lack of trying.”
It’s exciting to see how Jenkins views the Wonder Woman sequel. A lot of the time when making a sequel, a director can find it challenging to capture the magic that they found with the original. Hopefully, by seeing the film as something different and trying new things, Jenkins is able to deliver another great Wonder Woman movie for fans.
